Almost 2 weeks ago now, a group of girls ("The Knitting Girls") loaded into my car and we went on a trip. I am very lucky to be a knitter living in Western Washington. There are more independent yarn stores up and down the I-5 corridore than there are in some states. If you don't believe me - check out the Local Yarn Store Tour Website.
<---- That's everything I got. Seriously. And I have plans for most of it - either specific or vague - like socks.
The last photo today is a hank of Noro laceweight in pink, cream and brown. I'm not a fan or noro but I love this colorway. This yarn came from the last shop of the day - Beach Basket Yarns. We only made it to 5 shops this year, but it was lots of fun. The sun was shining, we laughed, shopped, had a fabulous lunch - what more could a girl want?
Oh - if you have any pattern ideas for the Noro - please share. I have no idea what I'm going to do with it. Seriously.
Tomorrow I'll share the goodies from the middle 3 shops.
